Councilmen-elect to speak at meeting

PICKENS — County councilmen-elect Chris Bowers, Roy Costner and Carl Hudson will be the featured speakers at a joint fall meeting of the Pickens County Taxpayers Association and Conservatives of the Upstate on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m., according to Dan Winchester and Junius Smith of the two groups.

The meeting will be held in Pickens at the Rural Water Office building at 4502 Moorefield Memorial Highway near the Cannon Hospital entrance.

The three will individually speak on their vision and ideas about county government and will answer questions.

Since a majority of council will be new on Jan. 1, 2017, Winchester and Smith said the two groups feel it is important that the people of the county be informed, and that is why they’re participating in this important meeting.

The meeting is open to the public.
